unplug firewire hard drive

OK, I'm getting there. My next hurdle: when I am done using my external firewire hard drive, I want to be able to disconnect it and take it away, without having to shut down the system. So I tried this: unmounted the file system, and powered off the drive. This caused the console to start saying

"ieee1394: error parsing configrom for node 0-00:1023"

So I'm assuming there's some additional step that I need to do to stop the device before I unhook it?

Tried googling for various things, but didn't turn anything up.

I'm running Sarge with a 2.6.8-686-smp kernel, and I do have the hotplug package installed.
